Spitfire: Epsom Campaign
The Epsom campaign for our Spitfire is now available!

Download from DCS e-shop



Screenshots

Fly the legendary Spitfire LF Mk. IX over Normandy in June 1944 as the allies attempt to break out of the D-Day landing beachheads. Battle German forces in the air and on the ground as the allies push south over 12 missions south of the Juno and Gold landing beaches. The missions consist of a combination of armed reconnaissance, intercepts, and directed ground attacks.

For this campaign, we teamed up with the greatly respected “Bunyap”, who has created an amazing level of detail and content for the briefings and historical background. All missions and flights in the campaign are based on actual missions down to the squadrons, targets, locations, times, weather, flak locations, etc. We believe this will be the most historically accurate portrayal of World War II air combat in a PC flight simulation.

Key Features:
  • 12 historic missions taken from detailed accounts of Operation Epsom
  • Detailed briefing and briefing images, including separate PDF mission files
  • Unique kneeboard graphics for each mission
  • Hundreds of specially recorded voice-over messages to recreate the actual callsigns and accents
  • A wide array of missions included armed reconnaissance, intercepts and ground attack
  • Takes advantage of new AI features like Flak avoidance and authentic formations

Localization:
Voiceovers: English
Briefings/Subtitles: English
Documentation: English

Note: In addition to DCS: Spitfire LF Mk.IX, this campaign also requires the DCS: Normandy 1944 Map / DCS: World War II Assets Pack.

DCS World 2.1.1 Update 2

This week we released the second update to DCS World 2.1.1 which includes some important fixes like corrected cockpits lights for the P/TF-51D, MiG-29 and F-86F; allow full scrolling of the Normandy map when in the in-game F10 map, and corrected to VR tool tip crash. The C-101 and M-2000C teams have also included several improvements. We are hard at work on many other fixes and improvements to DCS World 2 and the Normandy 1944 map.

You can read the complete 2.1.1 Update 2 changelog here.

Updated Su-33 Video

As part of our continued efforts to update all of the Flaming Cliffs 3 aircraft, the Su-33 is receiving many improvements as outlined in our early newsletter on this subject. For today, we’re happy to show our updated Su-33 with improved flight dynamics landing on the new Kuznetsov aircraft carrier that is also in development. We believe this will be a great counterpart to our Hornet.

New US Trains for DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Range Map
Although we have inner-city commuter trains in the Nevada map, we’ve lacked the inclusion of long-haul trains. Our team has been working on resolving this absent feature. We’ve included three images of the new train cars and locomotive coming to the DCS: NEVADA Test and Training Range Map.



WIP Screenshots

These will also be useful for future DCS World maps based in the United States.

DCS: Strait of Hormuz Map
In parallel with updating the Caucasus map, our map teams have been busy with the DCS: Strait of Hormuz Map. The team is making great progress with completing all of the airfields, adding additional details to the towns and cities, and refining the terrain details. Combined with the new lighting and rendering system, we are increasingly happy with the look and feel of this map. We continue to strive to make this map a close approximation of this region as possible.

Here are three images of the current state of this map.
